WHAT IS DEFRAG?

When Defrag started ten years ago in 2007, cloud computing was in its infancy, APIs were little known outside of a few engineers, and the Internet of Things, drones and robotics were the things of science fiction.

As we move toward the 10th anniversary edition of Defrag, we’re returning to our roots: developers. With sessions grounded in APIs, DevOps, the cloud, IoT and analytics, we’ll continue to expand on the themes emerging around the intersection of technology with society, government, education, healthcare and commerce.

Defrag’s intimacy, careful curation, and focus on providing an unparalleled attendee experience, offer a one-of-a-kind opportunity to gather together, make valuable connections, and inspire each other with insight, foresight and new learnings.

Defrag X: A CFP – kinda

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

This year, Defrag turns 10 years old. That’s a long-time in the world of tech conferences — very few tech conferences have ever lasted that long (PC Forum, OScon, Interop, etc), so we’re extremely grateful for the community that has formed around the themes we’ve explored at Defrag.

Over the years, those themes have covered everything from “enterprise 2.0,” to APIs to robots to drones to IoT to the intersection of tech and everything (government, medicine, education, manufacturing, etc). So, as I begin to dig in on this year’s agenda, I’ve been thinking a lot about where to take us for the 10 year anniversary.

At the end of the day, everything we’ve explored has come down to developers, and that’s precisely where I’d like to ground this year’s show (while we still explore some more “outside of the box” topics at the keynote level). So, if you’ve got a presentation around containers, serverless architectures, IoT, analytics, DevOps, or really anything that is developer-related, please send them my way for consideration (enorlin AT mac.com).

We won’t have a “speaker submission deadline” per se, as we’ve always run our agenda building as a “we fill as we fill” exercise. All of which is to say that the sooner you submit, the better.

And if you’d just like to attend (and see why we’ve been around for a decade), we’ve got special 10 year pricing right now, where you can get into to Defrag for just $795. Join us!
